India made this statement alluding to China’s ban on blacklisting Pakistan-based terrorists.
External Affairs Minister S. Addressing the 15-member UN Security Council on Ukraine, Jaishankar said, “The fight against impunity is vital to the establishment of peace and justice on a large scale. The Security Council must deliver a clear and unanimous message on this issue.”
The meeting was held on Thursday under the chairmanship of French Minister of European and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna. In a veiled attack on China, Jaishankar said, “One should never resort to politics to avoid accountability. Not even to save the guilty from punishment. It is sad that we have seen this happen recently in this council when it comes to banning some of the most dangerous terrorists in the world.
He said, “If the culprits of the horrific attacks in broad daylight are not punished, then this council should think what message we are sending by not punishing the culprits. If we have to ensure credibility then we have to make continuous efforts.”
